There is of course only a minor difference between an apple 1 ( one of only 200 ever produced in the 1970s) and a mass-produced mac sold in the mid 80s.

Face it. The machine has no intrinsic value. Just like any other computer more than a week old.

It's worth what someone is willing to pay. Check ebay completed sales and see if any show up there. I've got 2 or 3 taking up space too. Let me know if you find a sucker, uh buyer, who may want a few more.

If you want to know what "x" is worth, and its an object that was mass-produced, and legal to sell, then looking at closed auctions on eBay is your best bet. "Used" sales on Amazon are another good bet.

As it happens, a model 0001A without keyboard, mouse or power cord just sold for $41 on ebay, and there's one that sounds similar to yours but without software, bidding still open, for $79.99. What ever that one closes for, yours, with software, is presumably worth more.

Search "Macintosh Plus", then select Advanced and re-search with "completed auctions" checked. Prices in red didn't sell. Prices in green are end-of-auction. Note shipping charges.

There are two complete-looking buy-it-now systems over $200, so at a guess, your system is worth something in that neighborhood. They don't have Imagewriters- you might get $300 for the whole kit and kabootle.

I remember paying $2500 retail for my first Mac Plus + printer...

In contrast, one like my G3 Tower just sold for $45, and $42 shipping, which is a whole lot closer to worthless!
